Amazon Pick-Up Location Reportedly Coming To Allen Street

Amazon Prime believers may soon be in luck, as it seems Amazon is opening an online order pick-up location on Allen Street at the former location of the Halloween store and Abercrombie.

A sticker showed up on the window of the storefront Wednesday, which reads “Order online. Pick up here. Coming soon.”

Construction workers said the location is scheduled to be completed in about 12 weeks — just in time to order your textbooks for the fall semester. Instructions from Amazon make ordering to the pick-up point seem relatively easy.

To place an order for delivery to a Pickup Point:

  1. Place an eligible item in your shopping cart and click the Proceed to Checkout button.
  2. Click Search for a Pickup Point location near you when selecting a delivery address.
  3. Search by postcode, address, or landmark to find a location.
  4. From the search results, you’ll see the locations available. Select one by clicking Ship to this address next to the location of your choice. Complete your order as usual.

When your package is ready to be picked up, you’ll receive an e-mail notice from Amazon.com, with a unique bar code.

We know you’re still wondering one thing. The answer is yes. It still smells like Abercrombie.

We’ll update this story with more information as it becomes available.
